Hi everyone. I'm an experienced solo traveler who enjoys exploring great cities on foot. My focus is not so much on museums, as observing the culture, shopping for foods and wine, seeing the architecture, watching the people, etc. I typically rent an apartment, and do most of my own cooking.
My question is how many days can one spend in Venice in the above type format without being ready to move-on. As examples, I just returned from 30 days in Paris, and would have enjoyed extending the visit. Ten days in Rome a couple of years back yielded the same result; on the other hand, three days into a seven day stay in Athens, I would have been happy to leave, having gotten little joy from areas of the city other than the obvious must-sees.
So, for you fellow wanderers, is Venice a "one week" city, a "one
month" city, or something in between. Thanks for your help -- I plan to schedule the trip for May or September, so weather should not be a factor.
